Images from Disney’s live-action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs have been leaked beyond the set, and appear to feature Rachel Zegler in costume for the title princess role.
The images were found on Twitter, shared by @morebuttertv, show Ms. Zegler in the iconic Disney princess outfit with the primarily blue top and yellow skirt. The images appear to be candid.

Twitter user @BattinsonMarvel shared side-by-side images of Ms. Zegler with Disney’s first animated princess and said, “I appreciate the accuracy.”
And it is easy for one to see the accuracy seen here, as previous reports regarding this growingly-infamous reboot seem to suggest otherwise. We at Disney Fanatic have previously reported that Ms. Zegler intends to make Snow White noticeably Latina–distancing the classic Disney fairytale from its German roots–and Disney announced that due to sensitivity issues, the seven dwarfs were going to be replaced by some other magical creatures.

Ms. Zegler recently demonstrated her showstopping acting and singing abilities when she played Maria in Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the Broadway musical West Side Story. Released by 20th Century Studios, West Side Story is available for streaming now on Disney+.
The live-action remake of Walt Disney’s first-ever animated feature film is scheduled to be released sometime in 2023. While some questions continue to hover over casting, we know Zegler will be starring alongside Andrew Burnap and Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen.
After months of speculation, fans can finally get a glimpse of Ms. Zegler and decide for themselves if they think the magic mirror is right and she is worthy of being called “the fairest in the land.”
